by Colleen Hoover
Morgan Grant and her sixteen-year-old daughter, Clara, would like nothing more than to be nothing alike.
Morgan is determined to prevent her daughter from making the same mistakes she did. By getting pregnant and married way too young, Morgan put her own dreams on hold. Clara doesn’t want to follow in her mother’s footsteps. Her predictable mother doesn’t have a spontaneous bone in her body.
With warring personalities and conflicting goals, Morgan and Clara find it increasingly difficult to coexist. The only person who can bring peace to the household is Chris—Morgan’s husband, Clara’s father, and the family anchor. But that peace is shattered when Chris is involved in a tragic and questionable accident. The heartbreaking and long-lasting consequences will reach far beyond just Morgan and Clara.
While struggling to rebuild everything that crashed around them, Morgan finds comfort in the last person she expects to, and Clara turns to the one boy she’s been forbidden to see. With each passing day, new secrets, resentment, and misunderstandings make mother and daughter fall further apart. So far apart, it might be impossible for them to ever fall back together.
Okay… Need to calm down and stay collected… Now, breathe in… breathe out…
What was I thinking not reading this immediately when I bought this book? I couldn’t even begin to tell you how much I epically love this!
As per usual, all those books that I’ve bought two or three years ago are now looking at me like they’re blaming me for collecting dust on the shelves. Seriously giving me Colleen Hoover frantic vibes. So I grabbed Regretting You last weekend and from that moment on, I couldn’t put this book down.
Teenage angst, teenage pregnancy, broken marriage, awful secrets – yep, I lived this kind of story nowadays hahaha. But seriously, it was a good read.
Miller and Jonah are now my newest favorite male characters. And oh, let’s not forget Gramps, too. I think they’re all the most patient men I’ve met (okay, I mean, read about) and how they redefined my view about having a hopeful relationship. I dunno what I’m actually talking about here, but let’s just say, Morgan and Clara (I love her name because it’s also my name) were quite the mother-daughter tandem. Although I may not be a big fan of either Morgan or Clara, I liked that they’ve come full circle when they needed to. They both learned a lot about themselves all throughout the tumultuous time of their lives. As a mother myself, I know this innate feeling of extreme protectiveness when it comes to your children. It’s a crazy feeling.
I love how Colleen Hoover continuously amazes me with her novels. I don’t have any regrets following, stalking, loving, or hounding Colleen, I love how she continuously makes me feel crazy about her and her stories. She’s my lobster, I think. ⭐⭐⭐⭐
